Above is my homemade ricotta draining. I did not have cheesecloth so I used two of Mike's hankies sterilized with boiling water. The whey that drained from it is mostly gone since I used it to make two loaves of bread. The rest I will use in the pizza dough I am making tomorrow. Some of the ricotta will also be on that pizza. Yum!
Below are the cookies I made, a chocolate/peanut butter/oatmeal. Mike loves them. A dozen and a half are already gone and I have had maybe the half dozen.
This is the view from the top of the hill overlooking where we are staying. I think it looks like a scene out of the BBC series "All Creatures Great and Small". Beautiful
